sending some residents fleeing california. so where will they go? nevada tax accountant george ashley says he knows. nice to see you, george. >> hello, greta, thank you for having me. >> greta: what's the story? people who live on the border of nevada and california are making the quick move to nevada? >> well, that's the people living on the border, but people from all sorts of places in california who want to avoid the california tax, a lot of them are thinking about packing up and moving and a lot of them are doing it. >> greta: what would be the reason, folks from deeper into the state away from nevada, but if you live on the border of california, unless you're really wedded to your house, why not move the mile into nevada and save yourself 13.3%? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> when does it make sense? suppose i have a business in california and i'm thinking of selling my business, should i move to inform nenevada before it or stuck paying the taxes no matter what. >> depends on the sale. if you're selling stock in the business, for example, you could very well become a non-resident of
know nevada better than anyone. that is your town and you write extensively on the demographics, the change. we have talked about reid and his victory there and certainly some would have said was beatible but not by sharon angle. with that said, you have got the president on the ground in nevada. why is that -- i guess a perfect place if you will for this launch to hear from him in about 40 minutes or so? >> well, tamron, even though we are not a border state, we are an emblem of what's happening in this country. the hispanic population is burgeoning for sometime. now about a quarter of the state. it was about 20% of the electorate and talk about the election results that john mccain was talking about yesterday. barack obama won the latino vote about 55 points here in 2012. about the same percentage that he won by in 2008. and look at where the president is going today to make the announcement. going to a high school which is about 62% hispanic population of kids. maybe the biggest problem in this state facing the education system is a lot of hispanic kids who have come here and
are making the difference in a lot of these states. nevada, out west. north carolina, south carolina. more immigrants there, latinos. there is this realization i think that republicans need to turn more to the party of reagan. reagan as you said legalized 3 million illegal immigrants in the mid-'80s and this is probably the language that republicans need to embrace as they try to sell it to their base. >> yeah. let me point out, michael, you have paul ryan on "meet the press" and extensive interview and praising marco rubio's immigration stance. >> i support earned legalization, not rewarding people for cut in line but fix this problem. >> will he be an effective voice bringing over conservatives who may be still apprehensive or for that matter on the subject alone? michael, he did not have this bold view when it was perhaps needed during the election cycle. >> well, the only person that i remember broaching this subject in primary season was former house speaker newt gingrich at a time you will remember, tamron, he was briefly the front-runner and when he spoke out on this issue, there we
to nevada at this hour. a state that has come to symbolize the power and importance of the growing latino vote. the president is expected to lay out his own vision for immigration reform and show his public support for the bipartisan senate plan that was announced only yesterday. >> joining me now for our daily fix chris cali sfwl sxwl a, managing editor of post politics.com, and susan page, washington bureau chief for usa today. chris, what we are told is contrary to some reports that there is not a great deal of distance between what the president is going to say tow today and what the senate announced, at least as far as it goes, if the senate were to collapse, the senate plan were to collapse, then he might come out with perhaps a more liberal plan, but he is pretty much in sync on the advice of the congressional hispanic caucus to stay in line with what they're doing on the hill? >> that's incredibly meaningful because what that means is that it's not two tracks that this is running on. it's one track. this senate proposal -- again, there are a fair number of specifics in the senate
people in nevada to get approved. in that moment alan said, i felt the fear vanish. i felt accepted. so today alan's in a second year at the college of southern nevada. alan's studying to become a doctor. he hopes to join the air force. he's working hard every single day to build a better life for himself and his family. and all he wants is the opportunity to do his part to build a better america. so in the coming weeks, as the idea of reform becomes more real, and the debate becomes more heated and there are folk who is are trying to pull this thing apart, remember alan. and all those who share the same hopes and the same dreams. remember that this is not just a debate about policy. it's about people. it's about men and women. and young people. who want nothing more than the chance to earn their way in to the american story. and throughout our history, that's only made our nation stronger. and it's how we'll make sure that this century is the same as the last, an american century, welcoming of everybody who aspires to do something more. is willing to work hard to do it. is willing to p
.m. in new york city. president obama is going to unveil his immigration reform in a major speech in nevada, a state where hispanics make up 20% of the population. it's after a group of bipartisan senators reached a compromise on how to move forward with comprehensive immigration legislation. included in the bill, citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers in this country. >> other bipartisan groups and senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar pro po sales. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than supporting it. >> what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality, what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow them to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes and watch our children while not affording them the benefits that make our country great. >> those seeking citizenship would be required to register with the federal government, settle debts with the government including fines and back taxes, under go a crimina

[ dog barks ] ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] something powerful is coming. ♪ see it on february 3rd. ♪ >>> last night at this hour, we went live to nevada to cover the washington lobbyists for mass murderers, wayne lapierre, delivering a similar rant against president obama's second inaugural address. >> >> i would like to talk to you about one line near the end of president obama, speech, where he said "we cannot mistake absolutism for principle." let me quote the president again. we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. >> well, okay. but when i heard the president say that, gun control did not come to mind. i thought he was talking about modern-day republicans, which is to say neanderthal republicans,
't he keep his promise of immigration reform? >> jennifer: that tv ad aired in nevada. fortunately, the president got the last laugh by carrying nevada and then returning to las vegas today. and then today's speech wasn't really about votes. maybe it was a bit but really it was deeper than that. president obama is actually trying to find a solution. and in doing so he inspires, a we just said, those of us whose families came to this exceptional family to make a life. it's my story. unless you're a native american, it's your story too. now the question is whether the congress will be able to overcome the tired and old arguments and make it their story, a bipartisan tale as well. with us to break down the road ahead for immigration reform is "newsweek" daily beast correspondent michael tomasky who joins us from washington, d.c. welcomed in "the war room." >> good evening nice to be with you. >> jennifer: great to have you in the chair. there are some potential roadblocks for both sides of the aisle, are there not? for example tying citizenship to board security, the future primary ch
for immigration changes in the state of nevada as you were saying, jon. that is a state where latinos make up more than a quarter of the population. they went two to one for president obama last fall in the election. it is also a state where illegal immigrants make up 7.2% of the population. jon? jon: what is the response from republicans so far? >> reporter: well you have buy-in from some of them. they were part of that bipartisan senate group. there was john mccain of arizona, jeff flake of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, and marco rubio from florida. they have agreed to that framework so far. the top republican in the senate though is waiting. he would like more details from that group and from the president. senator mitch mcconnell says he hopes the president's speech today is not, quote, another divisive partisan speech. he says immigration changes should be, quote, on a bipartisan basis and include ideas from both sides of the aisle. you have house republicans such as texas congressman lamar smith, he said in a statement, quote, by granting amnesty the senate proposal actually com

, finally, to deal with the long-festering national challenge. the president launched his effort in nevada where more than a quarter of the state's residents are hispanic. >> i'm here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehends i have been immigration reform. ( cheers and applause ) the time is now. >> woodruff: the campaign-style event at a las vegas high school came a day after a bipartisan group of eight u.s. senators put forward their own plan. it calls for creating a path to legal citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people now estimated to be living in the u.s implementing that policy would be contingent on securing the southern border. seven years ago then senator obama the joined a similar effort >> if the compromise that's been discussed and has the agreement of those who were in this room, if that ends up being the bill that is signed into law, it's a win-win for everybody >> woodruff: today president obama praised the new senate effort. he said the path to citizenship must be clear from the start and not just be tied to border security. >> we have to lay
reid in nevada, who is an nra supporter, who's had the nra's support. this is going to be a very tough challenge for him to take on. and he's already sort of making noise that at this point, wait a minute, we're going to have to look at all these proposals. some of them like the checks, background check, really have much more sort of universal support. other things like the assault weapons ban, much tougher to get through. >> i mean, this is harry reid's biggest nightmare having the senate go first on assault weapons ban. this is not something he wants to bring up. i don't think he's, you know, my guess is there are a number of moderate democrats who come from states that are pro-gun states and they, i mean, we know that the last time that washington passed an assault weapons ban, that hurt democrats on the ballot the next time. and this is not a battle everyone in the democratic leadership wants. >> let's bring us now to the local level. i want to bring scott back into this, because i know that you've also talked to our local mayors, oakland mayor gene quan and san francisco mayor ed

[ inaudible ] >> i love you back. last week, last week i had the honor of being sworn in for a second term as president of the united states. and during my inaugural address, i talked about how making progress on the defining challenges of our time doesn't require us to settle every debate or ignore every difference that we may h
ahead the president's speech tomorrow in nevada where he will talk up his immigration plan from 2011. like the president this bipartisan plan from these senators would provide this pathway to citizenship. it would include a registration and probation program that would allow the nations illegal immigrants, 11 million of them or so, to stay in the united states and live and work with a green card as long as they paid taxes and penalties and then got in line for proper application for citizenship. but first, these senators want to beef up border security. they want to improve the tracking of legal immigrants who may stay beyond their legal immigration status. they also want to strengthen the ememployment verification system and create a green card system for top foreign college students getting ph.ds and massers degrees in math and sciences. senator mccain, for republicans would be good politically but one republican senator he was not yet ready to sign on. take a listen. >> we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. we can
-hitting senators made hur to put on the their announcement today ahead of the president's announcement in nevada tomorrow to show that there's bipartisan supports, to make sure that they didn't look as if they were following the president, which wouldn't be good for republicans in the group. while there is momentum among the elite in washington, we're not sure how this will play outside yet, and we saw back in 2007 you had ted kennedy aligned with the senate on the democratic side. you had john mccain on the republican side. the maverick came together and mccain got crushed on this issue. it was very damaging to him both in his presidential and also in his senate re-elect, so i think it's what's important to watch here as the immigration stuff unrolls this week. it's how are grassroots particularly conservatives reacting to these proposals. >> and the next big step coming up we've got a vote in the senate foreign relations committee tomorrow on john kerry. that's going to be automatic. he is going to be breezed through and voted for and hillary clinton leaves friday. he will be coming in next mo
the senator's proposal. >> first of all the president is still going to nevada tomorrow and delivering a speech that we all expect will have a very aggressive and forward lean on the issue of immigration. giving these senator space to come forward to these proposal is if you are motivated by real solutions we all know we need to get a deal to the president's desk. and it was important to do that. >> jennifer: yeah, i'm -- i'm glad to see that you can -- you know, set your ego aside and allow the senate to come forward with something that is by partisan, and if the president lobbed his own plan in that, who knows what would have happened. matt, are you worried that jan brewer and other border-state officials will end up vetoing, essentially these immigration measures by having to certedfy? >> yeah, i think you have hit on exactly what was the biggest troubling point in this framework. this clause that says there must be contingent upon securing the borders is something we have heard for a long time. and in poll after poll latino voters have said what if we have to w
the bipartisan plan. president obama is flying to nevada to push the issue there. there was a flash of the old straight talking john mccain today when he was asked why republicans are suddenly ready to compromise so much on immigration. >> one, as i have stated before elections, elections, the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens. but this is a preeminent issue with those citizens. >> today's developments left one right-wing republican observer completely dumbfounded. >> if the democrats think their position on immigration, let's use that for example, is the right one, and if the democrats' position is what is getting all that support from hispanic voters, what i don't understand is why would the democrats want to give up some of those voters to the republicans? can somebody help me out here. >> i don't know, rush, sounds like you're beyond help, but i'll give it a try. what you are seeing is not a compromise on immigration. you are seeing republicans surrender
in what used to be mexico, las vegas, nevada, to urge congress to overhaul the immigration system. >> today i'm laying out my ideas for immigration reform. and my hope is that this provides some key markers to members of congress as they craft a bill. because the ideas i'm proposing have traditionally been supported by both democrats like ted kennedy and republicans like president george w. bush. you don't get that matchup very often. >> the president's plan is similar to the plan eight bipartisan senators put forward yesterday, but it has not even cleared the path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the united states now. >> for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a path to citizenship. we have got to lay out a path. a process that includes passing a background check. paying taxes, paying a penalty. learning english. and then going to the back of the line behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. that is only fair. all right. >> under the president's proposal, undocumented workers would be re
the white house welcomed the deal. president obama will travel to nevada tuesday to lay out his vision which overlaps with the senate version. >> the president believes that it's very important that we move forward on comprehensive immigration reform. it's the right thing to do for the country. >> reporter: passage is widely expected in the senate, but the roadblock could come in the house. the rep conservatives have voiced concern -- republican conservatives have voiced concerns about creating paths to citizenships before holes in u.s. border security are closed. in an effort to gather more republican support for these proposals the path to citizenship has some stopgaps built into it. the senators say they will not allow those portions of the reforms to move forward until goals on border security are met. in the newsroom tom fitzgerald, fox 5 news. >> fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin joins us now to help break this down even more. we know this is a bipartisan group of lawmakers besides marco rubio, who are the other key players? >> yes. john mccain who is the standard bearer of the rep
